This may be old-hat but I could not find it in search in this section.

I've just now started to suspect that CPUID's Hardware Monitor temperatures are inflated.
Since the weather here in L.A. has cooled down I just overclocked my i7 950 on a ASUS Sabertooth X58 MoBo to 3864 MHz (4.2 GHz Turbo). I downloaded the Probe 2 system monitor at the same time as the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility.
The Probe 2 monitor shows a single CPU temp of 73 to 74 °C.
The CPUID Hardware Monitor shows the four CPU cores with temps of 81 to 88 °C.

I tend to think the ASUS utility designed to work with their motherboard in probably more accurate than the generic work-on-all-systems monitor from CPUID.
What do you think?

Sorry for the double post.
Today the weather is cooler and the temperature measures are closer together, pretty much match up.
ASUS Probe 2 single reading 72 or 73 °C
CPUID HW Monitor temps mostly readings from 72 to 79 °C though they fluctuate a bit.
